new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

book burning etc

at theage:

'the texan pastor's moved on from the koran to a pyre of the god delusion.

in scenes of calm bemusement not seen in the lower united states since john scopes taught innocent schoolchildren evolution, it was reported yesterday that pastor terry jones had given up on his plans to burn 200 korans and was instead planning to incite atheists by soaking a gross of richard dawkins's
the god delusion in moonshine and putting a match to them.

atheists, who hadn't been expected to come out in pick-up trucks with gun racks on their rear windows and circle his church with their engines revving like goaded rottweilers, didn't.'


'salman rushdie, from a safe-house in greenland, has called for calm and offered pastor jones a truckload of his novel the satanic verses to burn in place of the other texts. he said this should just about satisfy all parties, and if he can't win the nobel prize for literature, then he might as well get it for peace.

"my books have been smoked in both hemispheres," salman said, "so i'm not as easy to upset as some of these one-off authors like mohammed and god."'

the entire giggle here.

via the friendly atheist.
